Hedge funding 24 Feb 2019 300 hedging whips planted along the flight

During this task party 200 hedging whips were planted along the towpath below Lock 2 and adjacent to Lock 4.  Stony ground was an issue but was overcome with determined enthusiasm. A big thankyou went to Braunston Village Community Cafe who sponsored this project after responding positively to a request from the BCS Treasurer, Mike Gunn. Mike also procured the trees and bought his planting knowledge to the task. A further 100 whips will be planted this week at Lock 5 and various other gaps in the hedging along the flight.
